Tyler Beede's mom was so excited about her son's first career at-bat that she interrupted her interview to watch
Tuesday night was one for the memory books for freestyler rapper/Giants pitcher Tyler Beede, who made his MLB debut against the D-backs. He threw four innings of three-hit ball while allowing two runs, all under the watchful eye of his mother, Cheryl. The Giants went on to win, 5-4.
At the start of the bottom of the third inning, NBC Sports Bay Area reporter Amy Gutierrez caught up with Cheryl, who explained how Tyler told her that he would be coming up from Triple-A to pitch for the Giants. While discussing the emotions of his debut, though, Gutierrez pointed out that the PA announcer was about to say Beede's name for his first MLB at-bat:
Cheryl Rivers was so happy and thrilled about it that she asked if she could pause the interview to watch her son's debut at the plate.
Gutierrez obliged, of course, and Cheryl got to snap a picture of this dream come true:
It didn't matter that Beede went down on strikes. That's a memory he'll have forever -- and so will his mom.
